Nice win last night....

May I suggest you read "Twilight In The Desert" by Matt Simmons?

We have known for years the Saudis and everyone else with oil reserves has overstated their levels. Hell, 90% of of the world's oil producing nations have unaudited reserve levels so the recent Wikilieaks cables may understate the problems for the Saudis.

Once the easy oil is gone from the Saudi fields they will become a 4th world country. The West (read US) will become 2nd tier 1st world. The difference is out fall will be catastrophic.

Thanks. Always up for more insight and good reads. I should go back and re-read Daniel Yergin's "The Prize" - or at least the most recent updated sections.
